The mutant nation of Krakoa has quickly become a major force on the world stage...but why stop there?

IMMORTAL HULK writer Al Ewing joins EMPYRE artist Valerio Schiti to bring fans the newest X-title as Jonathan Hickman’s grand vision for mutantkind continues in the cosmos!

The stellar cast includes Magneto, Abigail Brand, Cable, Frenzy, Wiz-Kid, Fabian Cortez, former Avenger Manifold, and many other fan-favorite mutants who will be stepping into the spotlight in a major way. Ewing recently expanded on the team to Polygon, saying, “It’s not a Super Hero team in the sense of ‘We need to fight crime with six people and we need a super-strength person and a magic person... It’s a team built around roles. There’s an org chart. We have a station to staff, and various employment trees.” Get the writer's full insights right here, and look inside the issue below!
